Oven Baked potatoes
Preheat oven to 220°C. Prick each potato several times with a fork.
Rub potatoes with a little oil and place on a baking tray in the middle of the oven. Bake in preheated oven for 45-60 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Test with the point of a knife. Remove potatoes from the oven and follow instructions as above.

Microwaved Baked potatoes
Prick potatoes with a fork to pierce the skin. Place in microwave, and cook on high power for about 4-5 minutes for each potato; two potatoes will take 8-10 minutes. The time depends on the power of the microwave and the size of the potatoes. Carefully remove potatoes from the microwave and follow instructions as above.
